Anglican Rosary Prayer Beads, Blue & Gold
This Anglican rosary (also known as Protestant or Christian prayer beads), made with turquoise blue Czech crystal and gold pewter beads is a lovely aid to prayer. Perfect for personal prayer, and it would make a thoughtful gift for a special occasion in a Christian's life.
The Anglican rosary is based on Christ's life and has 33 beads, one for each year of His life. The beads are set out in groups of 7 week beads, separated with larger cruciform and invitatory beads. A pamphlet about the rosary is included.
The 4 groups of prayer beads are 7mm faceted Czech crystal and the larger cruciform beads between them are gold pewter with ornate detailing on each bead. Each bead is separately hand-linked with gold rosary wire so it flows nicely through your hands in prayer.
This smaller-sized rosary has a San Damiano Cross, with St Francis of Assisi's prayer on the back. The San Damiano Cross is a large Romanesque rood cross that St Francis of Assisi was praying before when he received his commission from the Lord to rebuild the church.
Length from mid-back to end of cross: 30cm (11.75")
Cross: 4cm (1.6")
The rosary is quite lightweight and compact, and as lovely to look at as it is to use. It comes in a handmade (by me) lined cotton rosary pouch to store it in, and will be attractively packaged.
